I was shopping at the perfume store when this product caught my attention. It's a body spray that can be used for hair too. As we all know, regular perfumes cause white hair.
So as I was checking it out, the salesperson asked me: (to be read in Egyptian accent)
She had a grin on her face with her eyes looking down. I waited for her to say something but she didn't. So I asked:
ليش يعني؟ اشعلاقة العطر بكوني متزوجه أو لا؟
All I had in mind was that the perfume could be seductive. But what makes it so special? I mean, aren't most perfumes supposed to be so? She paused, thinking of what to say, grinned again and said:
هو يعني اكس-سز-يوز-مي يعني
Her tone raised and said:
I won't say it. You figure it out.
(I still can't figure out why she said it loudly since she was acting polite)
So I said:
صج؟ شلون؟ ما فيه كحول؟؟
هي: لا، دووئييه
هي: طب دوئيييييه
أنا: لا مابي
She showed me two different flavors. One was chocolate, and the other was vanilla and caramel. It's glittery too. I took the body/hair spray only and she kept convincing me to get the other (eatable) products like lotions.
No, thanks maam, I said. But that didn't matter. She wouldn't stop until I told her:
لما أتزوج، أييلكم
She grinned again.
I was wondering for long about the relationship between the spray and it's brand name desert. Is it for stinky people living in hot areas for example? It's made in the USA and it's not that hot there; till I realized that it's deSSert not DeSert.
